The police on Monday docked a 23-year-old unemployed, Ademola Adeboje, at an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos for allegedly having weeds suspected to be Indian hemp in his possession.
Adeboje was charged with conspiracy, breach of the peace and unlawful possession of drugs to which he pleaded not guilty.
The Prosecutor, Insp. Evelyn Ehiemua, told the court that the defendant committed the offenses on Feb. 11 at 11.40 a.m. at Shaba Street, Agege, Lagos.
“Adeboje conspired with others who are still at large to unlawfully have in his possession weeds suspected to be Indian hemp, smoking it in public and constituting nuisance by polluting the air,” Ehiemua said. (Text courtesy Vanguard)
